Timed Trap is a real life, breathtaking, race against the time to find your way to freedom. In this rush hour, you will be trapped in a room with 60 minutes on the clock in which you must solve puzzles and use your initiative to crack codes with...more

We went to the cereal killer room a few months back, but we never got round to writing this review for we have been lazy. Our laziness is why we failed the escape room so badly. For starters, we had soup and crutons. haha just...More

As a group we've done several of the escape rooms around the country - some more elaborate than others. This is the worst I've seen. Aside from the place being completely shut when we arrived (at the stated 15 minutes prior to escape time) and...More

Firstly the booking- we couldn't book online via the Groupon site so i tried contacting Timed trap many times by ringing, emailing and even tried sending them a Facebook message (all this over 24hours). Then finally they contacted me back (an hour before we wanted...More

I have been to the Escape room on Aqueduct St and the Escape room is FAR BETTER! This is a poor quality representation of the escape room. Cheap props and no atmosphere. We will not be returning.

I would avoid this place at all costs- words can not explain how poor it was. It didn’t start off particularly well- you have to walk through a ‘working men’s club’ which had an old sofa outside the door before getting to the escape room...More

We should have realised as soon as we arrived that this was a poorly made escape room, the entrance sign was facing the complete opposite direction... We had to walk through a snooker hall which was filled with young men smoking and watching football, which...More

I went with colleagues and once we decided teams, we split into two rooms. Our team did the Prison themed room, and although I spent most of the time locked in a cell, I really enjoyed it. The puzzles didn't all make sense, and some...More

Awful just doesn't cover it. Sorry guys, but you really need to work on these rooms. A lot of the puzzles made no sense. There was no flow to the games at all. Too any red herrings, means you waste too much time on irrelevant...More
